Well, Ian is still having trouble eating...or more like he is very picky about what he does want to eat. We had another appointment with the speech therapist at Scottish Rite, who also does feeding therapy. As reported in another post, Ian does not have a taste aversion to textures and such, but he is hesitant about what goes in. She said it was most likely due to all the poking and prodding that he's had done to his mouth.
His current food selection includes:
Breakfast: waffles or cereal and applesauce or yogurt mixed with fruit puree--Yes, I've learned to be sneaky!
Lunch: fish sticks or chicken nuggets, chips and applesauce or yogurt
Dinner: same as lunch
With that said, we're trying new techniques as directed by the dr. to get Ian eating a healthier diet. I've come to terms with the fact that he's just going to be a small kid (He weighs only 24 pounds at 25 months.) and won't gain much weight quickly, but I do want him to eat a more rounded variety of foods.
So, I am turning to you for food suggestions. I do have Deceptively Delicious and have attempted some things out of there, but with little success (besides the muffins). I am willing to try new things as well as things tried before. Any help would be appreciated. And maybe a prayer or two as well as we try to get him eating new things.
